Welcome Message and Site Policy

A little about us:

This site is dedicated to Free Speech however, there are two policies that apply to all:  

First, no threats of any nature towards any person, participant, or public figures will be tolerated.  

Secondly, no pornography. That is not to say discussions regarding the infamous “Super Bowl Incident” will be banned. This is a common sense decency issue.  

Now for the rest:  

The Associated News Network believes in the First Amendment and will extend those rights to all participants no matter of race, religion, or nationality.  

The Associated News Network in fact encourages both strong debate, honesty, and openness. If for some reason an article appears offensive to you simply ignore it and start one of your own. The Associated News Network is also actively seeking those members that would like to participate in both the creation and growth of our community.

The site is geared towards news, politics, sports, environmental, and current events. The culture of the site will grow accordingly.

Throughout the years, some of us have had some “experiences” with other online communities that were, quite frankly unjust.   Here at The Associated News Network, you will find that Sys Admins, will be providing a function of both system administration, and moderation however, those members will not have the final say in the behavior, thoughts, and opinions of the participants of the community.

Too often we’ve noticed that other major news blogging sites allow their sys admins too much leverage in controlling content of the boards. This will not happen here. The moderators, sys admins will adhere to the sites two main policies stated above.  

Anyone that feels they have been unjustifiably or mistreated by any participant of the boards may email us at administrator@associated-news-network.com.

If you have been banned and would like to be reinstated send email us at administrator@associated-news-network.com explaining your situation (we all have bad days) , and a review will be conducted and we will contact you as soon as possible.  

The Associated News Network would like to thank you for visiting and will hope you will stay and join the community.

Thank you.
